Theatre Camp | Kids Out and About Philadelphia

Theatre Camp

Campers in 5th through 8th are taught acting, dance/movement, visual arts, storytelling/playwriting, all of which culminate in a final performance created, produced, and performed by the campers. During their time at camp, campers become members of small tribes. Through play and work in daily classes, campers create with their tribe imagined identities, roles, shared history, myths, and story.

Kids arrive and start the day with a specific morning project that then leads into a time of warm-up. They are then split into their specific groups or tribes and make their way through 2 artistic classes that may include acting, movement, visual arts and storytelling. All the tribes come together for lunch before completing 2 more artistic classes in the afternoon. The day ends with showings of what the tribes have accomplished throughout the day and a healthy snack. Throughout the two or three week camp the teachers focus on specific skills of the above disciplines while helping the kids to create an original theatre production to be performed on the last day of camp.
